The kids really love our secret Santa gift exchange with each other. When we first started this tradition, the kids were younger and the budget for a gift was $1.00. That basically meant that everyone picked something from the dollar bins at Target. Over time we raised it to $5, and now the budget is $10, which Chris and I supply to all the kiddos.
So on the morning of Christmas eve, the kids were extremely excited and all jumped in my bed when they woke up. They had a blast giving their presents to each other and revealing who they ‘bought’ a present for. This is definitely a fun time when you are from a large family. They even thought wrapping them was fun! They’re so silly.
